1 While driving off-app, Hertz provides for minimum financial responsibility as required by applicable law, but renter is responsible for all other liability incurred. Lyft provides additional coverage for on-app driving. For such Lyft coverage in California, click here. For such Lyft coverage in all other states, click here. Hertz may not offer any additional protection products, including insurance products. Terms and conditions apply to all protection and insurance products, and coverages may vary depending on local laws.

2 The Hertz Loss Damage Waiver applies to damage to the vehicle itself in excess of $1,000 occurring while off-app or while on-app before accepting a request from a passenger. Loss Damage Waiver terms can be found in the rental agreement, rental agreement addendum, and online. During other on-app periods, Lyft provides coverage for damage to the vehicle in the maximum amount of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) per claim, subject to a $1,000 deductible. Terms and conditions apply to all protection and insurance products, and coverages may vary depending on local laws.

3 At the time of rental, an authorization hold will be secured on your debit card provided to cover the estimated amount of the rental charges and any additional charges that may be incurred. These funds will not be available for your use. When a debit card is accepted as form of payment, at the start of the rental, two (2) forms of identification must be presented. Prepaid or stored value cards issued under a VISA or MasterCard logo are not accepted to qualify for rental. Both debit cards and prepaid or stored value cards issued under a VISA or MasterCard logo may be used as a form of payment when the vehicle is returned.

The credit scoring process performed through the services of Equifax are very similar to the type of credit checks that are done when a person applies for credit. This credit check is done at the rental location when you arrive.
